They held their breath, watched
Air vibrating like a string

Fleeting, probing eyes
Looking for the agreed sign
Glancing at the time.

Unsuspecting folk
Mill about, oblivious
To tweet daring us.

Clock counting down time
Numbers changing on glass screen
The chime strikes, girls scream!

Push play quick, dance now!
A hundred feet stomp the ground
In chaos they pound.

Commuters stop, stare
Confused, looking in silence
Smiling at the dance.

Then all dancing stops
The performers all disperse
Chaos in reverse.

From the prompt: –

“Those who were seen dancing were thought to be insane by those who could not hear the music.”  – Friedrich Nietzsche
